Bonneville prosecutor: No credible evidence Tapp is innocent
Published at | Updated at
IDAHO FALLS — The Bonneville County prosecutor released his conclusions of the Angie Dodge murder case Thursday afternoon and stated that no “new, credible and material” evidence exists that Christopher Tapp is innocent.
“The opinions of advocacy experts that Tapp is innocent do not outweigh the considerations of the evidence by the judge, jury and appellate courts who have opined and concluded that Tapp is guilty based upon the evidence presented at trial,” Prosecutor Daniel Clark wrote at the end of his 20-page report.
Tapp was convicted of the 1996 murder of 18-year-old Dodge. Many, including Tapp, Dodge’s mother, and forensic and legal experts, have argued serious mistakes were made during the investigation and trial and that Tapp is not guilty.
